Kole Norberg & Nora, son & daugher-in-law

For a while, I was a writer, teacher, and web designer. Now I have a PhD in cognitive psychology and do research on comprehension. I also make sure this site continues to function. My father’s career as a writer has definitely influenced my interest in language. When I was younger I wasn’t fond of my dad publishing my personal moments, such as getting a new bike, in the paper. At that point, I asked him to go cover fires, like a normal reporter, instead of writing about me. As I grew older I saw how writing allowed my dad to share his gift with others. Now, sometimes I even write about him. In the columns, I am also referred to as Beth or Elizabeth. In May of 2022, I married Nora (a teacher and fiction), giving my dad a new person to listen to his stories.
